Hi, I'm Taryn.
I began dancing professionally at 14 years of age and performed for many years as a "Candy Lane Dancer". In 1999, I moved overseas and danced a variety of styles in Australia and then Europe.
I started my company 5678 DanceSport for a few reasons. Firstly, I love teaching dance, but more important through teaching dance (specifically partner dancing), I started to notice huge changes in the social interaction between the children I was teaching. I was now getting joy out of not only the children learning dance, but more importantly, their positive attitudes towards one another.
Like learning a language, dance becomes harder to grasp as you get older...and so do manners and respect.
Starting 5678 DanceSport at a young age helps build confidence and improves social development, with the added benefit of learning to dance!
I liked dancing because I had a lot of fun. I did feel uncomfortable at the start, but as I went on, it got better and better! My favourite part was the 20 seconds crazy ride! Thank you so much. I wish you will come again some day!
